did you pull the clock fuse for 10 seconds? maybe the intake chamber is clogged

If you paid a shop to have it repaired.. and its not repaired.. take it back.

yeah they may have fixed it but if they say removed the ecu fuse instead of the clock fuse that wouldn't clear the code. I say pop the cover off the underhood fuse box and pull the clock fuse for a good 15 secs. also look below the distributor and see if you have a nice shiny new egr valve.

So are you getting the shop to still fix the work they messed up on? They obviously didn't do the right job and misdiagnosed the problem. You paid for them to do it right?

if you are getting a code 12 it could also be the egr solenoid inside the vacuum box
